“If I were an Anorexic, I would be in an eating disorder clinic”

| 09/02/2012 | 5 Comments More

Does this sound like someone you know? Or seen on the TV or the media? 5ft 8inch weighs 31stone and wears a size 40.  Well more and more this is becoming visible on our streets as obesity is becoming more and more of a problem leaving us the fattest nation in Europe.

At 42 she was crippled by her obesity, finding it difficult to walk or do any normal activity, at times people would shout abuse at her and she would occasionally be turned away from establishments such as cinemas and theatres.  She has tried countless diets and support groups and once lost 9stone but has always put it back on.  Uses food as a comfort like an alcoholic uses alcohol, binges on chocolate, cake, and sweets.

This was a client of mine when I was living in London and with the right direction and support she gained control of her weight and her life.

She was dismayed that even then which was only a few years ago by the lack of availability to obese people, it is better now but still not enough.  If she was an anorexic, she would have been supported and given the opportunity to go into an eating disorders clinic, but in the past doctors have just handed their patients a diet sheet and let them get on with it.  Now we do have dietritions, nutritionist and other support networks within the NHS.

We are called Fat Britain with an ever fast growing number of people becoming obese even in ages under the age of 14yrs.  There is more that can be done within the NHS & the Private sector but there is much that we can do as individuals with the world of the internet is a powerful tool to help with us bringing a healthy lifestyle into our homes.
